  1. I used a template from the living legend that is Martin Lewis: https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/shopping/visa-mastercard-chargeback/
  2. Have you spoken to your bank? They could authorise a charge back. I've recently had to do this for an event which was rescheduled with no option for a refund.
  3. Interesting. What Glastonbury have on their side is that they are able to introduce new terms and conditions when we pay our tickets off at the start of April. Would they be able to protect themselves by changing the conditions so that payment of the ticket balance in April is for EITHER Glastonbury 2020 OR should that postponed, Glastonbury 2021. That way they get to keep the money, helping out with cashflow should the festival be postponed. This seems like a sensible way forward and allows everyone to know where they stand... at least more than at present.
  4. I reckon there'll be an endless number of "Glastonbury announce their line up - but will it go ahead?" pieces whenever they announce now.
  5. Probably would have been sensible for me to look at the tweets he made immediately before that one.. ooops...
  6. https://twitter.com/Guy_Garvey/status/1236973279887360001 Could it be? Or is that just way too tenuous?
  7. Is it not a bit presumptuous to assume that the only way all female acts could be booked for the Pyramid is if it was a planned thing? HAIM, Diana Ross, Dua Lipa, Billie Eilush, Taylor Swift - would be one of the strongest Sunday line ups in years. Maybe they're just trying to book the best acts.
  8. I don't remember people calling the days when the Pyramid stage was wall to wall men a gimmick. Maybe it'll just happen organically based on who's big, Pyramid level and available?
  9. "Will these be surprises that are only revealed on the day? Like, it's Friday and guess who's on stage?" "Yeah" From 3 minutes and 10 seconds https://youtu.be/yKXh4p4PGHE Exciting!
  10. I thought the same at first. Wonder if they're planning on another new off-site option as well as Sticklinch and Worthy View? Or maybe there's extra space on site because of Sticklinch now?
  11. I thought that but then would they need a consultation if it was already happening?
  12. https://www.somersetlive.co.uk/news/somerset-news/glastonbury-2020-capacity-line-up-3702201 Did we already know about this? I wonder what the plans to change on and off site camping arrangements will amount to?
  13. Michael Eavis will get knighted. At least half of the tickets will be coach tickets by the end of the decade and at least half pre erected camping. As the festival continues to attract massive acts and the demographics of the fest change, the Pyramid field will get permanently extended. Reading/Leeds/Coachella style massive LED screens next to the Pyramid. They'll finally sort Silver Hayes out.

    So many boring dad rock boomers moaning about Taylor Swift being "too manufactured" to headline Glastonbury, despite writing or co-writing all of her own songs and playing guitar and piano. They seem to be the same people frothing at the mouth at Liam Gallagher headlining Reading/Leeds. A man who can't play any instruments and brought in One Direction's producer and songwriter for his last two solo albums

    Can't believe a professional photographer managed to catch one in the act up close in the first pic.
  16. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra are currently touring with Elvis Presley (or videos of him at least) and some of his band members. https://www.messengernewspapers.co.uk/news/18060454.review-elvis-concert---live-screen-manchester-arena/ Michael is a big fan. Would go down a storm before Diana Ross.
  17. He's already played twice.
  18. Robbie Williams has just announced a one off gig in Stoke on Trent the weekend before Glastonbury. https://www.stokesentinel.co.uk/whats-on/whats-on-news/robbie-williams-play-homecoming-gig-3583074.amp This must put him in the frame for a slot on the Pyramid? I know he said he'd only headline but stranger things have happened. On before Taylor Swift perhaps?
  19. Do you think eFestivals can influence the bookers? Maybe it's a wild thought but surely when this thread was started in 2014 she was a wild outside bet to headline. Then over the years since it's become more normalised to think she could play Worthy Farm and now it looks like she's finally playing. Maybe I've just got my tin foil hat on.

    Did we ever get to the bottom of that guy on Reddit who worked for a record label and said the festival were going to do something they'd never done before with a different type of act? Because Elvis Presley played Manchester Arena this week. https://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/news/18060445.review-elvis-concert---live-screen-manchester-arena/ Michael's a big fan I believe. Maybe he could sub Paul?

    Music is genreless. The snobbery around pop music is dead. People don't define themselves as being in to indie, or in to rock, or in to pop, anymore. The days of big festivals always being headlined by white men with guitars are over. I don't think this means Glastonbury has become more commercial. It's just reflecting current musical tastes.
